Risoul is a welcoming ski resort, big chalet-looking buildings, in the middle of a forest of 100 000 mélèzes. Risoul offers an outstanding Durance valley view, a dry and sunny climate, excepted while snow falls creating the « white forest ».
« Forêt Blanche » common name of the ski area Risoul – Vars. No matter your ski level, all skiers will enjoy postcard landscapes from Ecrins and Queyras. A 360° view, from Mont Blanc to Ventoux, passing by the Italian Viso.

Frequent snowfalls contrast with a pure blue sky. On the north & northeast exposed slopes, snow accumulation is remarkable. It allows our visitors to ski from december to april.
